Wednesday boss Gary Megson has confirmed the Owls are locked in talks to sign out-of-contract Charlton Athletic midfielder Jose Semedo.

Megson has told the Sheffield Star that he has travelled down to London for talks with the 26-year-old Portuguese man and that a deal is now ‘in the hands of Milan [Mandaric] and Paul [Aldridge].’

Semedo was the Addicks’ Players’ Player of the Year last season but is out of contract at The Valley this summer.

Charlton are understood to be offering Semedo a new deal to stay at the club, but the Owls new-found power in the transfer market, for League 1 standards at least, could be a big advantage.

Addicks boss Chris Powell has already revealed he’s keen to hold on to the defensive midfielder, who arrived in England from Sporting Lisbon as a centre-back.
